Comet Series Sensors:

The Comet Series from Eaton's electrical sector is a complete line of high performance, 18 mm tubular sensors with a variety of models and modes to solve virtually any sensing problem.

The sensors are available in thru-beam (opposed mode), reflex (retroreflective mode), polarized reflex (polarized retroreflective mode), diffuse reflective, focused diffuse reflective, wide angle diffuse reflective, Perfect Prox (fixed field mode), and plastic fiber optic sensing.

Perfect Prox is one of the most powerful problem-solving sensors available. These sensors can reliably detect targets of different color, reflectance, contrast or surface shape at the same range, while ignoring background objects just a fraction of an inch away.

The Comet Series includes AC/DC and DC-only models with two, three, and four wire circuitry. Choose from cable or micro-connector. Mini-connectors are available on two-wire models for easy retrofit. Each sensor features a Light/Dark Operation switch and a gain control to provide for quick adjustment to peak optical performance.

The unique threaded body with flat sides allows quick mounting in a 3/4 inch hole or against any flat surface. Internal components are rigidly sealed in a solid encapsulated package for excellent performance in high-vibration and high-shock applications.

  • Industry standard 18 mm diameter threaded body has flat sides allowing it to be mounted like a tubular sensor or against any flat surface
  • Right Angle viewing models mount in a depth of only 6/10th of an inch
  • Perfect Prox technology provides exceptional background rejection and application problem-solving
  • Visible sensing beams let you see where the beam is aimed for quick setup and alignment
  • Solid polyurethane housing completely encapsulates internal circuits for high resistance to shock and vibration
  • Adaptable modulation circuit provides immunity to crosstalk from other closely mounted sensors
  • The industry's only background rejection sensors with a two-wire circuit design
  • Models available with both AC and DC operation in a single unit - up to 264 VAC
  • Four-wire DC sensors offer both NPN and PNP outputs
  • Output status indicator visible from a wide 270 degree angle
